Dipset‘s Cam’ron and protege Vado will keep rap fans waiting a bit longer for their upcoming Gunz N’ Butta album as new reports suggest the project has suffered a setback.
According to repots, the duo’s LP release will be pushed back by two weeks.
These days, it seems rare that an album actually drops on its original release date. This reality is now one facing Cam’ron and Vado’s collaborative offering, Gunz N’ Butta. As previously reported, the Harlem natives were preparing to drop the album on August 31. However, XXLMag.com has learned that the album has been rescheduled for a September 14 release date.

In a recent statement, Vado proclaimed the project’s greatness and overall quality.
“The vibe between me and Cam was crazy,” remembers Vado. “I’m from his ‘hood on 142nd and Lenox, so once we started kickin’ it like Goodfellas and he started recording with me, it was history in the making.” Cam’ron and Vado look to continue flooding the streets with new music. After the release of their first official album as a duo, Gunz N’ Butta, on August 31st, 2010, Vado will release his first solo mixtape, Slime Flu, in the fall. Vado says of Gunz N’ Butta, “It’s our first album and I promise it’s so much of a classic. It’s like all the Boss of all Bosses tapes put together. We hit y’all from all angles–we hit y’all from the streets, for the ladies, for the club… It’s five stars, man.” (Hip Hop Press)
Last May, Cam said the album would drop sometime in August.
“Let me break it down: We’re the U.N. That’s the name of the team,” Cam described. “The U.N. is ‘Us Now.’ We got an album coming out in August that’s gonna be stupid. Vado’s solo joint, look towards December [for that one]. But I want everybody to be focused on that U.N. album, ’cause when that comes out, it’s gonna be bananas. Stupid. This August. [‘Speakin Tongues’], this is the first single off of it.” As of now, the U.N. is officially just Killa and Vado; they have three other artists who are down with them but not signed. Cam and company have 10 videos coming to the Web in the next several days, including “Ooh Baby” “Large in the Streets” and “Stop It Five.” (MTV)
Earlier this summer, Vado shared his reaction to Cam’ron and Jim Jones reuniting after a three-year estrangement.
“Cam sat me down, he told me what’s going on and what’s about to happen and I felt it was a great look for Harlem. Then to top it off, you’re adding a new artist to it, you feel me? So I told Cam it sounded like a great look and we about to take over. I’m behind whatever Cam do, no homo, ’cause if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be here…Like a week before [radio personality] Miss Info had put it out. I was hearing it through the grapevine but me and him never spoke on it. One day he asked me to come to his house because he lives down the road from me in Edgewater. So I went to his crib, we sat and he asked me how I felt about it and I said that’s a good look. I mean me being from Harlem, I want to do this music right. I want to big up my borough. I want to be with cats from my town that could solidify me.” (Complex)
Gunz N’ Butta is now scheduled to drop Tuesday, September 14th.
